Human Being, Not Human Doing
Time to be. Why call my blog by that name? Because I enjoy the peaceful act of simply being as much as doing. I've learned that it's necessary to set aside regular time for solitude, reflection and introspection. With this blog, I'll focus on being, not just doing. I'll express opinions and observations, offer thoughts about items in the news, reflect and ruminate, reminisce and ramble, dream. I will look to see life for all that's good and report on the simplest tasks and most fundamental of relationships with nature and others. With a deep respect for the gentle steadfastness of my beloved mom who passed away four weeks ago and with a nod to her favorite author, Gladys Taber, I will write of joy, of loving and of living in the moment. Time to be.
